Why does Mozilla cache so many files, typically 27,000 + each day thus using so much memory? By clearing the cache I typically recover 800MB DAILY!
I'm about to delete Firefox from my laptop for the third time - and this time I shan't be returning. Three main reasons : 1. Constant Plug-in crashes, 2. Irritatingly frequent 'flash-player has closed' problems, and 3. The over-active cache created files. Can anyone tell this technophobe where I've gone wrong? As far as I am aware plug-ins are upto date (including Adobe Flash Player).

We are sorry for the trouble/problems you are getting while using Firefox. As you mentioned about plugin Crashes, can you please send us some crash report so that we can assist you better with your problem.
Please see this
Did you check at what size the cache is set?
- Firefox > Preferences > Advanced > Network > Cached Web Content
Can you post troubleshooting information from the desktop computer?
